It’s now been about 3 weeks since I decided to take a break from running due to aggravating my knee while lifting a heavy box during the move. I thought I would give you guys a bit of an update and let you know how things are going. Of course, running on an already sore […]

After a 1 week break from workouts, I finally felt like I had enough energy to get back into exercise yesterday. My body was literally craving a run! It was also a good excuse to take a much needed break from unpacking. For some pre-run fuel, I tried out a Vega snack bar that I […]

Busting Boredom on the Treadmill: 5 Mile & 5km Workouts

IMG_7593

When I hear the word treadmill, a few words come to mind: Boring. Repetitive. Dull. Auto-repeat. Nooooooooooooooooooo. You too? My reaction is mostly because I tend to fall into major treadmill ruts. I’ve recently discovered if I don’t consciously make an effort to create interesting treadmill workouts, then I really only have myself to blame […]

IMG_2296

Leave it to Old Man Winter to arrive promptly before my first race in almost 16 months. Impeccable timing, Old Man. I swear, it was mild and there was no snow on the ground when I booked the race. As soon as I booked, a storm moved in on the weekend and the temperature plummeted. […]

I’ve been getting outside for runs this week, trying to soak up every last degree of warmth. Yesterday, I had a great run that I like to call the “5-mile pick-up run”. With each […]

7 Workouts I’m Loving This Summer

Spinning

This past Spring, I challenged myself to include more variety in my workouts. After a long Winter, I found myself in a workout rut and I knew I needed to mix things up. In May, I fell in love with Hot Yoga and it renewed my enthusiasm for trying new forms of exercise. Since then, […]

Speedy Running Strategies & Summer Running Goals

img-4442

Back in the day, I used to be into all that crazy track and field stuff. High jump, shot put, long jump, relay, and sprints. Short distance sprints were always my favourite event. I loved the intense, breathless pace and the thrill of not knowing who would cross the finish line first. Sometimes I won, […]

IMG_0760

I finally got around to ordering a new pair of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 10’s! Stank-free and blinding white. ;) I discovered Brooks Adrenaline last Spring when I had a special fitting done at Fit 2 Run in Sarasota, Florida. I suffered from chronic blisters for a couple years and it caused me a lot of […]
